Default I have Honda Civic that has been lowered. It's now become a problem...How do I raise it back to

normal height? When I bought the car it was already lowered. A friend of mine said that it has an option on the suspension to raise it back to normal. How would I do that? Also, If there isn't really an option on the current suspension to return the car to normal height. How costly would it be to fix?

if it has coil over suspension just adjust the height by moving a switch on the top of the suspension spring. Most civics are lowered like that like mine for example. Its the least expensive way to lower a car so most are done this way, if not then just get higher springs shouldn't be any more than maybe 100max for a new set, but heres a basic picture of coil over suspension.

take it to a job and see if the springs and what not are adjustable..if not find factory springs to put back on. but you may have to fix the camber to and what not.

if it has adjustable coil overs then you can get it raised up, but then when you drive it, it will be stiff and an uncomfortable ride, you'll feel every little bump in the road. Your best bet is to go and buy stock suspension (shocks). cost all depends on which path you choose to and where you get the stock suspension and who puts it in...I suggest checking out Craigslist. Good luck

Well you'd have to carry it to a mechanic for them to raise it back up if it is that the suspension is adjustable. If it turns out thats not the case then you'd have to look for OEM springs (original Honda springs) for your Civic & then let the mechanic put those back on.

Some people cut out a section of their spring to lower their cars. In this case you would need to buy new coils for your car. But as someone mentioned there is a cheap adjustment on the shock that other people use for a quick adjustment.
